    i did this one for a customer who is giving it to her friend who is having a baby. she just gave it to me and said go for it and this is what i ended up with. brooks stuff, lots of stripes, lots of time cleaning and polishing the original paint and those white walls i redid with one shot paint as well. it was a fun project

    Well, that's about the coolest thing I've seen in a while.

    It just doesn't get much more rat than that.

    Nice work Adam. :wink:

    thanks for the comments. it was almost a disaster when the customer came to me after telling me the child's name (he had not been born yet) and said the mother was changing his name from Zachery to Zackery. some quick thinking and i was able to fix it luckily. and yes this one was spendy but it is sort of an heirloom thing i think.

    If I was Zach, I would put that saddle on all my bikes growing up.

    Wow, that's a work of art. Love all the details. I don't think I would want my kid riding it. I would just sit and look at it.
